At last it looks like Arsenal fans might have something to get excited about on this final day of the summer transfer window. As long as you consider the signing of the England international striker Danny Welbeck exciting that is.
Sky Sports are reporting that the 23-year old is currently having a medical ahead of joining the Gunners, when not long ago it looked like Welbeck was set to join our north London neighbours Tottenham on a season long loan deal.
There is no word as yet about whether Arsenal will be taking him from United on loan or permanently, but with Olivier Giroud due back in action around the turn of the year, you would assume that it was a loan deal.
Welbeck may not be everyone’s cup of tea. He has not exactly been prolific at Old Trafford but I like him and what he offers the team and there have been plenty of reports linking him with us before which said that Arsene Wenger was a fan, so it is not just a transfer stab in the dark.
Happy now Gooners?
